Aroma: grain malts, light fruity, light caramel. Appearance: clear amber, small, white, frothy head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: grain, cereal malts, very light sweets, caramel, soft carbonation, lightly dry finish. Overall: average Bitter, nothing special, not my favourite. Pint at The Bear, Bath.

johndoughty (4772) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2014
Bottle. Lovely clear bronze appearance. Slightly spiced with a bit of nuttiness. Far more body than I expected for its strength. Well rounded, well bottled and worth trying.

jmgreenuk (6970) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - OCT 5, 2014
Cask at the Wellington, Birmingham. Poured a clear medium amber with a thin broken white head and a little lace. The aroma is malt, light hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a malt, light resin woody hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

ComradeK (1092) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 18, 2014
500ml bottle. Pours a clear copper amber, with a smallish off-white head, which lasts reasonably well and leaves a little lacing. Caramel, toffee and fruity and floral hops notes make up the aroma. Floral and spice hops up front give way to full-bodied toffee and caramel malt in the mid-palate. Fruity hops come into the finish. A nicely balanced bitter.

MyLittleTown (8) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2014 does not count
A nondescript darkish looking bitter, with no bite and little flavour. Appearance better than drinking experience. Almost no aroma, very flat and lifeless (could be down to the pub), and a faint bready taste.

leaparsons (9552) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2014
Bottle. Golden brown with an off white head. Aromas are yeasty with nutty weetabix and hints of apple. Flavours are sweet weetabix and biscuit with caramel. Lemon with green apple and a nutty, dry finish. Quite yeasty. Solid enough bitter.

olsvammel (5441) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2014
Bottle from Millets Farm Store. Malty smell, nutty with caramel. Similar taste. Malt focused beer. Easy to drink.

erickok (5041) - Leuven, BELGIUM - APR 22, 2014
Very clean dark golden to brown body with bubbly instable head. Dry and rough malts, lightly toasty, dusty and with a rough low yeast profile. Cardboard even. Taste is in the same vain, not terribly interesting and a bit too dusty. Ah well. (50cl bottle from Beer City)

AshtonMcCobb (4918) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 16, 2014
On cask at the Haymarket. Appearance - amber with a nice head. Nose - toffee some biscuit perhaps a touch of apple. Taste - more of the same. Palate - light to medium bodied with a tangy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - solid but doesn’t require copious notes.
